Billed as offering true “mission adaptability” for the end user, the PICO-DS Medical Chest Rack allows the user to remain hands-free and mobile while administering care to those in need. It can be worn either as a standalone rack or it can be attached to TYR’s PICO-DS Assaulter’s Plate Carrier via the Quick Attach Surface Mount (QASM) buckle system. Each rack comes with a removable H-Harness, while internally, a removable antimicrobial/FR treated spacer mesh pad is used for enhanced comfort and reduced dry time in dry or tropical conditions.
Designed around the guidelines set forth by the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC), the TYR Tactical PICO-DS Medical Chest Rack is available at a suggested retail price of $149.95. See below for a rundown of features, via the official product page.
